We have just returned from an 11 night stay at the Belcekiz Beach Club in Olu Deniz. There were four of us in the party, me, my wife (50ish) and our two daughters aged 21 & 18. We had twin rooms next to each other.
Let me start with the BIG negative…… We should have booked 14 nights not 11 (this is a fantastic hotel) !!!
OK a couple of ‘proper’ very very minor negatives….If I am honest this not the most luxurious Turkish hotel we have stayed in but what it lacks in luxury is more than compensated for in everything else. Another small minus point and then I will get on to all the positives. Whilst the food was excellent quality, I would not give it top marks for variety and choices. (But maybe it is just that we have been very spoilt elsewhere). So that is the negatives and onto the positives.
Staff friendliness rated 10/10 (I would give them 11/10 if possible)

Hotel Cleanliness rated 10/10
Bar facilities rated 10/10

Everything else rated 10/10
We have been to Turkey several times before and love the Turkish people. Generally all hotel staff are very friendly and even those you meet away from the tourist areas always seem polite and friendly. But I cannot remember ever going to a hotel where the staff and made us feel so welcome and special. From the cleaning staff right up to the managers everyone of the makes you feel as if you are the only guest that matters, they are a credit to the hotel. Small things matter and I was touched that as our coach left to come home there were about 15 staff waving us off, not only the entertainment team but cleaners, waitresses and managers.
Cleanliness – Absolutely spotless
Bar facilities – The pool bar is the only daytime drinking place (apart from coffee) but in the evening the main bar is opened. This has a great atmosphere and most nights have music and dancing. Both bars have waiter service which despite being busy is well staffed so the drinks come fast. (And again the staff are so friendly)
Entertainment team – We did not watch any of the shows but I assume that they are of the usual standard for this type of hotel. But throughout the day the entertainment team work tirelessly to make your stay a pleasant one and there is always something going on. Conversly they do not hassle you if you just want to laze around. (PS You will not be able to stop your feet tapping to the Turkish Club Song).
Pool – Clean, safe and well maintained. Sunbeds – We were there high season and there were enough sunbeds to go around, however a lot of them are in shady positions so there is a bit of a rush to get the sunny ones. The hotel adopt a time restriction for the sunbeds directly on poolside and no one is allowed to put towels out before 8am so you get a queue forming from about 7am. Having said that there was only one morning where all the beds were taken straight away.
Food Quality – As I said above apart from variety we had no complaints. Excellent.
Location – This hotel is right on the beach and has bars, shops and restaurants within arms reach. The Blue Lagoon is only a 10 minute walk.
Would we go there again? A BIG BIG YES !!!
